Star Trek: Captain's Peril by William Shatner

Star Trek: Captain's Peril
William Shatner
2002, 2004, Pocket Books, New York

This is two stories interwoven in the one book. One story is of Picard and Kirk who go to Bajor for an archaeological holiday. The other is back when Kirk first commanded the Enterprise and encountered an alien with incredible powers.

Fantastic. I didn't know Shatner could write so well. And yes, he had a little help from the Reeves-Stevens but the story is exciting and the prose is effortless, with some interesting astro-physics and tech placed seemlessly into the story. By far the best Trek alumni novelist I have read so far.
